@martin @schnittchen @jalcine @krono @dgold If you’re going to use Firefox Sync, ensure that you’re not storing your data with Mozilla, Inc. This great write up tells you how to run your own sync server


Just keep in mind that you still have to have a Firefox account at for logins.
They claim they cannot do anything with it, but that's up to you to believe

@ck @martin @schnittchen @jalcine @krono @dgold Right, didn’t know that. Wow. Even if you self-host? Unsurprising. Unboosting.

@aral @martin specifies in another "...unless you also run a private account server"

Their docs say all the crypto is done clientside, and you can read the code to verify it.

@Wolf480pl @ck @aral
and in the end you need to #trust the browser anyway, don't you? i mean, how can you make sure they are not collecting all the data in the background, whether or not you enabled sync..?

that's why i'm not using #chrome - they are for sure collecting everything there is to collect...

for #firefox i'm at least not sure ;-)

i'd still recommend to #questionthat individually.
